Will and Kate's romantic getaway a family affair
Keeping track of Will and Kate is a bit of a cat-and-mouse game.
Last week, after Prince William returned from six weeks in the Falkland Islands, it was reported that he and the Duchess of Cambridge had gone for a romantic ski getaway in Verbier, Switzerland.
And, romantic as that still may be, they are not alone -- Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael, and brother James are also in the party.
“They were sitting all together in an alpine restaurant half way up the mountain and looked very happy and relaxed,” one skier told the Mail’s Richard Kay.
While holidaying with the in-laws may not be some people’s cup of tea, it suits Prince William just fine. In fact, he quite enjoys the family atmosphere, having been raised in quite a different world.
The last time they all got together was in January on the Caribbean island paradise of Mustique.
Between holidays, Will and Kate led very separate lives. While William was in the Falklands as a search and rescue pilot, Kate took up the royal torch with several engagements focusing mainly on her new royal charities.
The couple has one major foreign tour scheduled this year as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. They will visit Malaysia, Singapore, the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu in September.
SWEDE BABY ESTELLE
The Princess's fully name is Estelle Silvia Ewa Mary, otherwise known as the Duchess of Oestergoetland. She was born to Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel on Feb. 23.
This is the royal couple's first child and she becomes second in line for the throne behind her mother Victoria.
Victoria, 34, and Daniel, 38, were married in 2010.
